Apple Insider is reporting that Apple will unveil iPod companions early next year. These products will help Apple grow its marketshare in the very profitable consumer electronics space.
The first product to be unveiled could an iPod boombox, essentially an oversized iPod with bombox-type speakers. Details are scarce but it could come with wireless audio streaming capabilities, a built-in hard drive, an iPod dock and integrated satellite radio (if a partnership with Sirius can be worked out)
It is possible that Apple will announce some of these products at January’s Macworld Expo.
